How Does the Chilipad Sleep System Work?

The Chilisleep control unit is a revolutionary way to regulate the temperature of your bed. It uses water to generate a wide range of temperatures, from 55 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit (or 13 to 43 degrees Celsius). The water flows through soft coils on the mattress, actively adjusting the temperature of the bed surface. There is nothing but water flowing through the mattress; all temperature changes occur in the control unit conveniently located next to the bed.

This makes it easy to switch from a warm electric blanket to a comfortable cooling mattress cover.The

Chilipad

sleep system is composed of a mattress that connects, through a long, flat tube, to a cube that regulates the temperature. To use it, pour water into the bucket and adjust the temperature from a dial on the cube or a remote control that comes with it. The cube's temperature range is 55 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit (or 13 to 43 degrees Celsius), so you can make it colder or warmer while you sleep. The cube is where the magic happens, heating and cooling the water (depending on what the user wants when he sleeps), before pumping the temperature-controlled water through the tube into the pad, which is filled with smaller silicone tubes.The Chilipad is thin enough that it can be used on a mattress without affecting its contour properties.

It's not necessary, but if you choose to use a mattress protector, be sure to place it under the Chilipad instead of on top of it to maintain optimal cooling performance. Electric blankets and heating mattresses have been around for decades, but cooling devices such as ChiliPad and BedJet are more recent innovations. That's why the Chilipad comes in a “WE” option for couples, and a “ME” model for those who sleep alone.If you're using a Chilipad, it's best to set the temperature half an hour before you go to bed so that it will be ready when you settle in. The ChiliPad heating and cooling pad is made of durable 150 thread count polycotton and weighs less than five pounds.

And while technically not mandatory, using distilled water can prevent sediment build-up inside the Chilipad tubes.Your skin isn't meant to come into direct contact with the Chilipad, but it's made of a cotton-polyester blend that seems to add a little more cushion to my mattress. Budget-conscious buyers who don't require as many features may be attracted by Chilipad's lower price. Neurologist Chris Winter, the president of Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine in Virginia and author of two books on how to sleep better, isn't financially compensated by ChiliPad, but it probably should be because of the amount of praise he gives him.Both the Chilipad and the OOLER are available in full or half size queen, king and California king sizes to accommodate one or two people sleeping. You should also clean the control unit once a month by emptying it, filling it with distilled water and Chilipad cleaning solution, letting it work at high temperature for 1 hour and draining it.The ChiliPad is an innovative way to regulate your bed's temperature for optimal comfort while sleeping.

It uses water to generate temperatures ranging from 55 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit (or 13 to 43 degrees Celsius). The pad is made of durable 150 thread count polycotton and weighs less than five pounds. It can be used on any mattress without affecting its contour properties. And while technically not mandatory, using distilled water can prevent sediment build-up inside the Chilipad tubes.The Chilipad sleep system is an excellent choice for budget-conscious buyers who don't require as many features as other cooling devices such as BedJet or OOLER.

It's easy to set up and use, and its temperature range makes it suitable for both couples and single sleepers. Plus, regular maintenance with distilled water can help keep your Chilipad running smoothly for years.
